What an exciting year thus far. I want to thank the members of our Leadership Team for some outstanding work. The Audit and Accounting Committee has done a marvelous job in reviewing our financial house and working with the Treasurer and myself to ensure that we are on a sound financial pathway into the future. We have experienced a wonderful response to Elks Camp Barrett by placing over 20 children in the camping experience this year. Roger Marcil led the efforts to repair and renovate our cabin, making it 100% ready for the season.
I am pleased to announce the Elk of the Month for August is Dave Claffy.Dave has provided us with hours of entertainment as our Disc Jockey and put together a wonderful musical tribute that we used during the Flag Day Ritual.Dave serves on the Board of Trustees and as the Lodge’s Mediator this year.
Volunteers are always needed on the House Committee to help with meals and numerous other activities around the Lodge. Contact one of us to get involved by volunteering an hour or so each week.
